- Wedding: September 2010
But, it isn’t fair to my fiance for me to rant to him.
The FILs are sometimes a little, to um, helpful (read: they stick their noses where they don’t belong).
The most recent instance, was that I had been planning to get ready at a family friend of my fiance (pretty much his second dad) before the ceremony. I was trying to figure out a place close to the reception, so that the girls can leave their cars behind. The family friend graciously offered use of his home for us to get our dresses on, snap a couple of pictures, and have the limo come get us.
Well, this is apparently NOT okay with the FILs, and FMIL has already decided on my behalf that I will not be accepting the family friend’s offer. Apparently doing so, accoridng to FMIL, would be an incredible inconvenience etc.
FMIL has suggested I get ready at our own apartment, which is not practical because a) it is too far from the reception site b) it is not very large and c) it is my wedding day, and as much as it shouldn’t matter … I don’t want to truck through my apartment lobby in my wedding dress, there are always people sitting in the common area.
FMIL has also suggested use of a hotel, however, my hair appointment is until 11am, so I’d need use of the hotel room from 1130-1pm, which is inbetween check in and check out times. Though FILs said they will pay (begrudgingly) for a hotel room, it isn’t feasible with the time frame I need. And to pay $200 for a hotel room for 1.5 hours, seems ridicilous. Not to mention, I want to spend the night with my BMs, 4 of us in a room with two double beds will be pretty damn squishy.
I’m just annoyed. I wish they wouldn’t have butted themselves in. Lesson I’ve learned, I’m not talking anything wedding related, unless I absolutely have to.
